yes she is still in the UK
She is Nigerian
She was refused stay as an extended family member but was informed that when her son was born she should submit the childs birth certifivate and proof of her partners status(hes a british naional with british passport)
Thanks you Tom
yes she is in a very very loving relationship with the father for a number of years and she initially came to the UK on a student visa
they have lived together for over 2yrs and the father of the child is a supermarket manager of Tesco and earns well over £18600!!
Thank you Tom so in effect she cannot get any kind of temporary residence in the UK for the purposes of getting married to her British
Thanks Tom in terms of her Identity address would that be sufficient for a church wedding? and not stating the obvious what form of id would suffice for both identity and address? they have lived together for at least 2yrs and the minister of the church knows them very well as regular worshippers it is certainly not a "sham" marriage we hear of so much about these days!!
Thanks Tom Just for the sake of clarity and I wont disturb you any longer ! could she get married in a Church with the same documents required for the registry office??
Thank you Tom I wish you a good day I hope to be in touch with you again very soon!
hello Tom sorry to be a nuisance but can you assist with this point?
does this lady need any residence visa or temporary residence permit (if such a thing exists) to marry in this country because the minister mentioned to them both the fiancée should have some sort of residency permit? and once married can the wife apply for a spouse visa?
Good afternoon Tom
Please can you just confirm if a wedding ceremony were to take place can the wife then apply for a spouse visa? and on a separate note if both parties were not British citizens and the women gave birth to a son would the same rules apply to them in terms of marriage conditions and is there some sort of authority that we can show the minister that the fiancee does not need leave to remain just to get married
Thank you Tom I will not bother you again! you have been immensely helpful thank you
good morning Thomas hope I am not disturbing you again? anyway the couple went to register intent to marry the registra was helpful and suggested they get in touch with the home office for an id card to confirm the lady's nationality ?? is this possible? are the Home Office obliged to do this even though the lady is in "limbo land" as regards ***** ***** in the UK and wont they issue deportation orders instead of issuing an id card when they discover her intention to marry?
thats fine Tom
the registra suggested the home office could issue some sort of document confirming her identity or copy the inside of the lady's passport which they have retained! could they issue a deportation notice once they get wind of the intended marriage?
Ok Thank you
